- Mythical Creatures: Loch Ness Monster
The Loch Ness Monster, affectionately known as Nessie, is a creature in Scottish folklore that is said to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is often described as large, long-necked, with one or more humps protruding from the water. Some witnesses say it has a relatively small head but a long mouth with serrated teeth. Popular interest in the creature has varied since it was brought to worldwide attention in the early 20th century thanks to the widespread popularization of film photography. However, sightings of the beast go back as far as the sixth century AD. Evidence of the Loch Ness Monster is almost entirely anecdotal, with several disputed photographs and sonar readings mixed in. Much like Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Chupacabra, the subculture of cryptozoology has placed particular emphasis on this legendary creature of the Scottish Highlands. Inspired by the folk stories and legends of mysterious creatures and mythical monsters, Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered a vintage-styled poster of Nessie. This classic monster design is available as a poster print, canvas, metal sign, mini-canvas, or as a notecard or postcard.
